I made this pizza with venison (deer meat) seasoned with chopped garlic--very tasty! I used mozzarella cheese and homemade pizza sauce. Chopped onions are good, sauteed mushrooms and olives complete the great pizza taste.


1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Pizza toppings: sauce, meat, olives, mushrooms, cheeses, etc. Whatever sounds good!


1. Dissolve yeast in water and oil. Stir in sugar, salt, and flour.

2. Mix until a soft dough forms that doesn't stick too bad to the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 5-10 minutes in a warm place. The oven is a good spot and I like to leave the oven light on for just the right amount of warmth. Place the dough on an oiled pizza pan or cookie sheet and spread to the edges leaving a nice rim around the edge. I like to spread corn meal on the pizza pan for an extra crunch and to keep the pizza from sticking.

3.Cover with your toppings in layers, starting with the pizza sauce. Bake at 385 degrees for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden. Turning the pizza halfway through the baking time helps to keep the crust from browning too much on one side.
